Artist's Statement The artists’ book titled “Black Saturday” was my response to the horrific events which occurred in Victoria during February 2009. The materials I used were those I had on hand in the studio at the time; old artworks, magazines, newspapers, printouts of emails sent and received. The work became a personal narrative of my thoughts and feelings and a documentation of media reports. I used maps from the areas affected, cutting out silhouettes depicting both people and place. The red stitched line running horizontally through the book represents the flat line that occurs when a person’s heart ceases to beat.
